asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation what steps are being taken to screen the lights on the Bath Road which are confusing the airmen landing at Heathrow.

A method of screening the street lights on the Bath Road, which were confusing to pilots landing at the London Airport, has now been evolved as the result of tests carried out by my Department in conjunction with the Ministry of Transport and the local authorities. Owing to fuel restrictions, only two out of the 44 street lights in question are now in use and these have been screened, the remaining lamps are being similarly modified.
